We visited this desert in the month of april. Overall you could say the best time to visit are our wintermonths november to april. The place is considered the hottest place on earth, measured by Nasa. They registered 70 degrees celcius in our summer!

Usually the best time to visit Scotland is from mid April till the end of May but you can be lucky and experience good weather all year round. April is great with the patches of snow, brown grass and blue sky contrast whereas in August you can experience nice green/pink colors. Can be crowded during weekends with good weather but it is still memorable experience.

Open from May 15 to November 15 from dusk til dawn. Best time to visit is either spring or fall during the week. You will have the place to your self! If you go through out the summer (or any weekend) head up early morning, it starts to get busier around noon.

Summer offers the best and driest weather in July and August. However, bad weather can still occur. Always check the forecast, bring rain gear and dress in layers to be prepared for every kind of weather. If you want to avoid the most snow, don’t go before June. In May even places like Paradise are still covered with snow. In most years the area is usually snow-free from about mid-July through late September.

Avoiding the Crowds

July and August are also the peak tourist months. Paradise and Sunrise will be quite crowded. Visit in September: After the first Labor Day weekend (early September) tourist crowds dissipate. However there are 3 simple ways dodge the crowds and get a parking lot even during peak season in the summer:

  • Be there early in the morning. Preferably before 9 AM.
  • Alternatively, you could arrive late, between 5 PM and 6 PM. Most visitors have left the park at 6 PM. You'd avoid most crowds and enjoy one of the fascinating Day Hikes / Shorter Hikes
  • Try to avoid weekends and visit mid-week if possible.

Sweet Spot Months

Sweet spot months with fewer crowds and a high chance of good weather are JUNE and SEPTEMBER (immediately after Labor Day crowds disappear). In September it’s even snow free, and the visitor centers and all its facilities are usually open until the end of September. But still, try to avoid weekends in September if possible or start early in the morning.

Gros Morne is beautiful year round but is best visited between late May and Mid October. The temperatures are pleasant and whales can be spotted (in July/August) as well as some icebergs (in June).

Weather
It’s unpredictable and often changes very dynamically. Also prepare yourself for hikes to higher elevations, as it is much cooler there.

May - October (warmer months): Temperatures become pleasant in May: 5-11°C (41-52°F). However, many hiking trails remain partly snow covered throughout May. Also hiking/climbing Gros Morne Mountain summit is not permitted until the beginning of July. In June it gets warmer: 5ºC- 20ºC (40-70ºF). The months of July and August bring the warmest and driest conditions: Average daytime temperature 16–25 °C (61–77°F). September and October temperatures are still pleasant. In October they drop to 5-10°C (41-50°F).

November - April (cooler months): Especially January, February and March are the best months for winter/snow activities. In years of higher snowfall, skiing is even possible into late April. Temperatures range from −10-0°C / 14-32°F.


Tourist Crowds: 
The warmest months of July and August are also the peak tourist months. However, even during high season it’s never heavily crowded in Gros Morne National Park. The only limitations are the tight accommodations in July/August. Book early if you plan to visit in summer.

Highlights (Icebergs, Whale Watching):
A few icebergs can be seen from May until early July. Visit from mid-May until late June to be on the safe side (Iceberg Facts). However, the much better spots to view them are along the east cost. They are traveling from the north (St. Anthony) to the south, passing Twillingate, then Bonavista. The best months for whale watching are July and August, as they follow their food sources. You will increase your chances off seeing whales by taking a boat tour in Gros Morne NP.  In some areas you can still see them in September. Also wildflowers bloom during most of the summer.
